Discussion + Review: The Elementals Series

If you’ve been following my blog, or even my social media, for a few months than you know just how much I love Michelle Madow’s books! My love for them is so strong that I decided to write an entire post all about her latest series: Elementals! If you’re a fan of the Percy Jackson or Secret Circle series then you’re in for a treat. This series is the perfect blend of the two plus so much more! Read on if you want to know more about this fascinating series!

Nicole Cassidy is a witch descended from the Greek gods… but she doesn’t know it until she moves to a new town and discovers a dangerous world of magic and monsters that she never knew existed.

When the Olympian Comet shoots through the sky for the first time in three thousand years, Nicole and four others — including mysterious bad-boy Blake — are gifted with elemental powers. But the comet has another effect — it opens the portal to another dimension that has imprisoned the Titans for centuries. After an ancient monster escapes, it’s up to Nicole and the others to follow a cryptic prophecy in time to save the town… and possibly the world.

Book 2

A demigod who can kill with a touch. It’s an ability that must be kept secret from everyone—even from those trusted most.

Finding out that she was a witch was strange enough, but now Nicole must face the realization that she has the rare power to kill with just a touch. No one can know her secret — not even Blake, who she’s had undeniable chemistry with since first moving to town.

Now Nicole, Blake, and the three others with elemental powers must journey abroad to stop a series of monsters that they previously believed to be dead from rising once again and destroying the mortal world. Will they all survive the quest? And how long will it be until Nicole is forced to use her ability to kill in front of everyone, revealing the true darkness of her powers?

Mini Review:

I actually was lucky enough to receive an extremely early copy of this novel because Michelle was awesome enough to let me refer to it for a presentation and paper for my Mythology class! I’ve been holding off on my review so my teacher won’t accuse me of plagiarism :/

Things heat up very quickly in The Blood of the Hydra! If you thought The Prophecy of Shadows was action packed just wait until you dive into this. The Elementals embark on a journey after they learn more about the portal and the monsters coming out of it. Readers are taken on an epic journey that parallels The Odyssey but with a unique modern twist! Between monsters, gods, and boy troubles, this book will keep you at the edge of your seat wondering what’s going to happen next.

Book 3

Release Date: June 29, 2016

When Nicole Cassidy moved to a new town, she discovered that she was a witch descended from gods. But that was nothing compared to learning that it was up to her and four others with mysterious elemental powers to help save the world from the Titans, who would soon return to Earth.

Now her relationship with Blake — the fire Elemental — is finally heating up. But she must remain focused, because Typhon, one of the deadliest creatures in history, has escaped from the weakening prison world. Only one object can destroy him — the head of Medusa herself.

Follow the Elementals as they journey to the end of the Earth, facing choices that will put their lives and the entire world at risk. Will they all survive the mission? Find out in the riveting third book in the Elementals series, The Head of Medusa.

I am beyond excited to continue this series! First of all- look at this cover, it’s stunning. I cannot wait to see where Michelle is going to take us next, but I know it’s going to be fantastic. Michelle never disappoints (:

Elementals: The Portal to Kerberos 

Title Reveal

The title for the 4th installment was released last week and I am soooooo excited! There will be a cover reveal in June but I think that this piece has clouds, so the air elemental may take this cover. But we’ll find out! If I’m not mistaken, Michelle mentioned on Twitter that this book will parallel Dante’s Inferno– which sounds absolutely amazing.


Why should you read Elementals?

 Elementals is a really fun series that is packed full of action, adventure, and drama! If you love Greek mythology, witches, and magic than this series is absolutely perfect for you. Pick up your copy today and dive into the magical world of the Elementals!

    • Thank you so much Miranda! I love Michelle’s work so much ❤ Feel free to DM me on Twitter on any time if you want to chat about Michelle's (or anyone else's) books!

  1. I supported Michelle for a long time because I wanted to love her books, but her writing and I don’t work together well unfortunately 😦 I’m glad that you like her, and that her Elementals series is doing well 🙂
